Former Liverpool man Jamie Carragher has warned Manchester United that Tottenham star Harry Kane may not be the best fit due to the fee demanded for a player his age.

Harry Kane, 26, has made 25 appearances so far during this season in which he has scored 17 goals and provided 2 assists.

His current contract with Spurs runs until the summer of 2024.

In a column for the Telegraph, Carragher wrote: “Kane turns 27 in July. We have no idea when the next transfer window will open or next season start. If Kane does not leave soon, the situation gets trickier for him.

“When players hit 28, psychologically it makes a big difference to clubs. They see him as nearer 30, recognise there is no resale value and balk at high valuations.

“Manchester United’s need for a top-class No.9 is urgent and they might see Kane as the ideal fit, but they will apply the same logic if the fee is upwards of £150 million.

“From Kane’s perspective, is United’s situation better than Spurs over the past five years? There is a four-point gap in the Premier League but United remain in transition.”
